Nick Chubb had been on the Heisman Trophy watch list all season long and was one of the biggest impact players in the nation this year. Unfortunately, his season has come to an end due to a gruesome knee injury that he suffered this past week against the Tennessee Volunteers.
Georgia has come out and given an official update on the injury and there is good news and bad news.
The good news is obviously that Chubb didn’t do any damage to his ACL. The bad news is that he did do damage to some of his knee ligaments.
Georgia is hoping that Chubb can come back next season and get back to being the dominant playmaker that he was for the majority of this season until the injury.
During the season up until his injury, Chubb had totaled 747 yards and seven touchdowns on just 92 carries. Those numbers average out to an impressive 8.1 yards per carry. He also had a receiving touchdown.
More news will come out in the coming months about Chubb’s recovery process and the timetable for his return to the field.
If you believe in prayer, saying a quick prayer for Chubb throughout his recovery process would be a good thing to do, as it will be one of the most difficult and painful thing that he will ever have to do in life.
Stay tuned to Campus Sports, as we will cover any update to the Chubb situation as it becomes available.
